altblog – Gabriele Beveridge
Gabriele Beveridge’s materials frequently derive from sites of commerce, particularly those where we prepare and process our bodies, or more accurately where we pay others to perform labour on our surfaces. Display and presentation are persistent themes throughout the practice. Beveridge includes found photographic imagery, cropped posters and promotional material found in hair and nail salons, alongside photograms which are a new addition to the artist’s lexicon.

altblog — Kader Attia — macval
Kader Attia who has dedicated himself to research into the power relationships that continue to affect the post-colonial world, reflecting on the processes of domination that pass through the urban space and the way in which the migrant body is affected and politicised. Using documentary film, sculpture, collage and the construction of environmentally intense installations, his work dialogues with the memory of modern architecture in Africa, its appropriation through this of the history of the local and vernacular architecture and its continued repressive interference in the lives of the population.

Rosso_067_S_hires cropped_0
L’exposition approfondit les différents concepts sur lesquels Rosso travaille à travers son œuvre : son combat avec la matière, sa conviction que la lumière constitue l’essentiel dans l’observation d’une œuvre d’art, son opinion sur la place de la sculpture dans l’espace, sa perception de l’importance de l’environnement, la valeur qu’il attache au point de vue du spectateur, et son intérêt pour l’image et ses qualités lumineuses. Ce principe amène Rosso de la sculpture à la photographie. Comme Brancusi, il photographie ses propres œuvres dans son atelier, modifie les arrière-plans des photos, adapte leur cadrage et laisse ainsi les formes de ses images se dissoudre et se fondre dans l’espace.
